Testimonials and Success Stories

“It felt good to get it out of the way, one off my plate. That was a good stress relief." 

Erica Dixon, Galileo Senior High School student in Danville, Virginia as she submitted her college application during Virginia’s College Application Week pilot project.  She learned that she was accepted to Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.
 
 

"Our College Application Week has dramatically impacted seniors at Hardin High School.  Simply completing a college application form and receiving a letter of acceptance  boosts morale and motivates seniors to graduate on time prepared for college."

Hardin High School Counselor, Laura Sundheim in Hardin, Montana
 
 

“Applying to college is the first step on the path to earning the necessary skills to compete in the fast-paced, 21st Century global economy. We must make sure that we have the highly educated workforce needed to fill the top jobs in the Commonwealth.”

Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell as he declared November 26-30, 2012 as Virginia College Application Week.
 
 

"As a parent of child senior at Elk City High School in Oklahoma, I feel College App Week was a great event for our students. It was fun to see how excited the kids were when they completed their applications, especially those who never considered college as an option.  The whole experience was very educational for me, and I'm glad I got to be a part of it.”

Cheryl Firth, a member of the Elk City Parent Leadership Team
 
 

“It was certainly my privilege to be a part of the first College App Week in Oklahoma.  I believe it to be a valuable initiative that will help students, especially first generation students, take the first step toward college.  I witnessed how much it means for high school seniors to have knowledgeable assistance during the application process, which can be overwhelming.  I look forward to this program expanding across the state and seeing more Oklahoma students successfully apply to and complete college.”

Phyllis Hudecki, Oklahoma State Secretary of Education
